Artist’s Statement:
Inspired by a workshop in Houston in 2010, taught by Elly Sienkiewicz, this is the third in a series of what was initially planned to be a single Baltimore Album quilt. My main challenges were: to make smaller, more complex blocks; to experiment using more challenging appliqué and embroidery techniques; and to use a colour palette outside my comfort level.
